Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


During the past 10 years, instructions for contributors to the Soil Geographical Database of Europe have been provided by means of a "Users' Guide". The geographical expansion of the database, together with users' experience of the guide, has led to the development of this new 'Instructions Guide'. It describes the methodology that has been followed in developing the database; and is meant to facilitate the task of experts from new contributing countries in preparing materials for the database.
